The approach: Combine 50 years of community building
with the ultimate visioning team.
It takes vision to create a dynamic, well-designed community like Koa Ridge. Vision from the people who really matter: O'ahu residents. Early in the planning stages, we engaged a community visioning group consisting of nearby residents and representatives from over 45 community organizations in central O'ahu to help formulate the guiding values and principles of this new community. Together, we crafted the following vision statement to best express our desires for Koa Ridge:
Koa Ridge will be a multi-generational, multi-cultural community that honors the past while embracing the future. It will be a "first-name community" where neighbors share their love for natural beauty, commitment to life-long education, a healthy lifestyle, and shared traditions and values while pursuing their individual dreams.
This vision statement is embodied in the "Guiding Principles for Koa Ridge" which has piloted the planning and design of the Koa Ridge community.

It's all right in your neighborhood at Koa Ridge.
At the very heart of it all, the Village.
One of Koa Ridge’s truly unique amenities is "The Village" in the heart of the community. It’s a place where you can meet up with your neighbors for a cup of coffee, a bite to eat, a school performance or community event. Or escape for a little retail therapy while you peruse the shops, hit the farmer’s market, or go to the grocery store. It’s a respite for recreation. A community for learning and working. Kids can play on the endless stretches of green grass. There’s even a hotel planned for out-of-town family and friends. And the best part is, it’s all walkable.
A healthy community equals a healthier you.
There's just something healthier about living at Koa Ridge. For one, you have the planned medical services incorporated into the community. There's no need to drive to town for medical care. You can also stay strong and fit by using Koa Ridge's recreation facilities, gorgeous park and green spaces, and over 7 miles of walking and bike paths. You'll find that you walk more here. And the cool Central O'ahu breezes make it all the more enjoyable.
